Fill it up all the way, and be sure to get the blue x-ring seals in properly, as well as be sure not to pinch the seal on the diff cup.

drip it out first then take out the gears and clean them down, then put gears back in and fill it up.

I use naptha in cleaning out my diffs. It dissolves/thins out the oil pretty quick for an easy cleaning.

Did you have any problem with the tranny striping or anything. Did you do anything to it other then lock it into second.

no i have not had any problems with the tranny and i have a center diff and forward only conversion in it but i have not done any other mods to it but lock it in 2nd. i ended up putting 500k oil in the CD and the front tires balloon a little less and with the duct tape inside, the tires only balloon on the outside and the inside stays in. it handles a little better with the stiffer shocks and new oil in the diffs. i finally finished painting the body for it. tell me wat ya think.









and im thinkin about getting a 1/8 buggy roller and putting all the revo's brushless stuff in it then making my revo nitro again.

So you didn't put in Robinson racing gears or have the pins inside the tranny break because One of the guys that helped me get mine started on what conversion and he has a friend that did the same thing but he ran 6s and was breaking the pins and burring up slipper pads so that is why I am curious of if you have had problems. Did you race this truck just to kind of know what abuse you were doing with it.

Well I am in a debate now I am a 15 year old at the moment so I don't have a lot of money and I would like to get this revo going but I don't know if it is worth it because I have heard that the tranny donsn't hold but I don't want to sell my sc10 that I just got just to get the mmm speed control and motor just so I can show it off on our last day of school and show people what I do in all of my free time.

wooow!!!! im 15 years old too! its nice to have another teen on the forums. you could get a mamba max esc, castle BEC, and a feigao motor for it and a 4s lipo. that might be less expensive than the mmm combo

Yeah well if you could run it more and see if it brakes and what breaks that would be nice to look out for. I order a 5s lipo so we will see.
